Martin Engineering’s Roll-Gen System uses kinetic energy from a moving conveyor belt to generate enough power to run a variety of electronic systems. The company says it creates a self-contained mini power station to run monitoring and safety systems. The Roll-Gen System can be retrofitted on existing idler support structures, so no special stock of conveyor rollers is required. As conveyors move into the next generation of ‘smart systems’ that are predicted to be more sustainable and autonomous, the manufacturer says this device is a first step toward eliminating power production obstacles.
